Probably inexpensive 18ga wire, because that's all they need. Why does what they use inside matter?

You just need a single RCA coaxial cable to go from the receiver sub output jack to the subwoofer line input jack.

For speaker wire, I would suggest that you look at the MonoPrice #2791 14-gauge speaker wire, which is $25 for a 100-foot spool.

12 gauge would be too big right? go with 14 or 16 or 18?

would these plugs work?

For sound : There's no such thing as "too big"... there's only "bigger than needed". A "too big" wire works just fine.

For fitting into your banana jack... the ones linked say they will take 12ga.

Use this to calculate the required gauge:

Plugs are an unnecessary expense. Use them if you wish.
